Try your best to be confident



For most of my life, I’ve felt that I wasn’t good enough for anything or anyone. It’s kept me from doing so much in life. Most of my memories from elementary school, in fact, involve me just reading on my own in the library because I was too nervous to make friends. Whenever I did make friends, I lived in fear that I would do something stupid and lose them somehow. I’m still terrified that it’ll happen and I’ll be left alone, and it gives me horrible anxiety. But I’ve gotten a lot better at making friends now all thanks to one really good friend that I made. She knew how I felt and she always encouraged me to go out and talk and make friends. I started doing it more and more and I really got better. When I saw how well I was doing, it made me so happy that I had come so far and I was actually able to make so many friends. Now I feel a lot better when I’m in a new place with new people because it’s a lot easier to talk to them and make friends. And it made me feel good that so many people wanted to be friends with me. If you want to become confident like I did, you need to try your best at everything you do.

  2. Great post! I can definitely relate to this. It’s amazing what one person can do for you. Sometimes the confidence from one person can be such a blessing. It can help you to have confidence in yourself when you have none. And then you can find out what it is you can actually do. Your story is a great reminder for those of us still waiting for that great friend to be that friend for ourselves. By going out and trying our best, in spite of what we feel, we may discover new things about ourselves.
